ENVISIONING THE FUTURE
As a vision for the future, PCRG could explore ways to collaborate with the local Kent and Ravenna Timebanks. They are part of the Crooked River Timebank network. If you're interested in exploring how we might knit together Portage County into a more democratic, equitable community, our local time banks could be a critical part.
Time-banking is a time-based currency. It is also (and most essentially) a community. Give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. You can use the credits in turn to receive services — or you can donate them to others. An hour of service is always one time credit regardless of the nature of the service performed.
One Hour = One Credit
It helps to remember that the one=one rule is rooted deep in the idea that regardless of whether we value what we do in different ways, we share a fundamental equality as human beings.
A Complementary Currency
The focus of Timebanking is on our value as human beings. It seeks to connect us through the relationships we create through giving and receiving. It operates in this way as a complement to the money-dominated world we inhabit.
Designed to increase our individual and community well-being, Timebanking takes place through exchanges by members as they give and receive services to each other, or through group and community activities and projects. Members can include individuals, groups and organizations. Read More
